Breathing is a spontaneous activity that we rarely observe although our whole life depends on it.
Do you know that breath is a language of our inner self and well-being?
Right breathing can greatly enhance our health. Pranayama is the ancient practice of controlling our Prana or life energy or breath. The majority of the ailments are known to be due to an imbalance in the flow of Prana. With the right control of our Prana one can get lot of benefits.

Some of the feedback from the previous workshops
Vinay ji it was a wonderful eye-opener regarding our breath and how to utilize it to calm down/ activate our thoughts, mind, and body… thank you so much… your each and every session like trataka and pranayama along with regular class teachings are so interlinked to each other and opens a different view to look towards body and mind… this time it was beyond that which is prana! Thank you for all the good work you do and the knowledge you share… 🙏
I am a senior citizen and regular student of Yogavijnana. Nadi Shuddhi Pranayama is regular in most of the sessions. We have a longer Pranayama session by Vinay, during the classes, in which a major portion is in Shavasana posture. Other Pranayama sessions we have occasionally. But this ‘Pranayama’ workshop is the most comprehensive. We got to understand all the Pranayama’s methodically, its benefits, exceptions, recommendations, and especially what is the correct way to do. Now we understood pranayama’s in one go and can also practice all of them in sequence. All the sessions were highly informative. I had the best sleep, during these 5 days, which I had not experienced for quite some time. Back-end videos by Vinay are excellent, anyone can understand and correct themselves. Thank you, Vinay, I am greatly benefitted. Thanks. Vaidehi
Pranayam workshop was an amazing experience for me and I learnt a lot of minute details that I missed during weekly classes. Though we do a bit of Pranayam in the regular classes, the workshop was very helpful in fine-tuning each of the breathing practices and helped in calming the mind at the end of a busy day, in addition to regulating my breathing by the end of the last session. Looking forward to more workshops like this. Thank you, Vinay, for conducting this truly wonderful workshop
Lots can happen over a cup of coffee, we have heard this often, 😀likewise lots can be understood about your prana (life force) and yama ( control) via this five day workshop. This gave me an in-depth penetration into my breathing , made me make modifications on how I breathe. Took us from a gross level of understanding about our breathing to a subtler level . Realised Pranayama is more of a mind-control than a mere breath-control. Thank you Vinay
Thanks, Vinay Sir for such a wonderful 5-day session. I have a much clearer idea about Pranayama and the various techniques it involves. Moreover, the suitability of specific Pranayamas and a clear understanding of who should practice those and who shouldn’t be explained in a very clear manner. I am borderline hypertensive but after every session, I felt much lighter and energetic. Thanks a lot Vinay Sir. I know, I haven’t been a very disciplined student, but you have been extremely accommodative and patient. THANKS A LOT!! Kind regards!!
Namaste Vinay! Your efforts to spread awareness about yoga and the practices associated – Asanas, Pranayama and Meditation – are praiseworthy! The importance of practising the Asanas before the Pranayamas was well explained. You ensure that we understand our limitations and also don’t go overboard – “it is important to accept our limitations and on the other end also shed our ego!” You and your team have also backed up the explanation in the session with the reference material online, so that the doubts that we might have are all well clarified.
Personally, I have enjoyed the silence of the practices and have become observant of my breath and trying to make subtle and gradual corrections. I am glad I enrolled for the session. I am looking forward to the follow-up sessions and hopefully find myself ready for Level 2 :~)
Thank you, Vinay and your able team! I am glad I am part of Yogavijnana!
It gave a complete idea about the following and also how to slowly implement all of these in our daily routine,
- About how to practice pranayama
- Complete picture of the sequence to be followed
- How to connect with and understand better our body and mind
- How to calm down by focusing on our breath without getting stressed with the various demands during the day to day activities
- Observe and understand our reaction to the various stimuli around us and also to balance our reaction to it
- And we have absorbed many more things subconsciously- correct posture while sitting .. can go on ..
Thank you very much “
The pranayama workshop was an eye-opener. I went with the feeling that I will enjoy the workshop as I am a regular practitioner and am used to the regular Pranayama classes Vinay conducts. In the regular class, I used to feel a sense of calm after the pranayama session.
But this workshop was a whole new experience for me. I learned many advantages of pranayama and also got enriched by Vinay’s explanation of each pranayama and who can practice it and what are the prerequisites.
Especially the last day of the workshop was so good as Vinay took us through all the practices of pranayama one by one and allowed us to explore more.
After the workshop, I was definitely more informed and now can really observe my breath during my daily routine. Thank u so much Vinay. It was truly an enriching experience and I enjoyed it thoroughly.
I highly recommend everyone to attend the workshop.
